Master Gardner’s plan Fall Vegetable-Herb Plant Sale

Donald Bragg carefully chooses the herbs he wants to grow in his garden at the Spring Vegetable and Herb Plant Sale last year. 

The Fort Bend County Master Gardeners are holding their annual Fall Vegetable-Herb Plant Sale on Saturday, Oct. 12, from 9 a.m. to noon at the Bud O’Shieles Community Center, 1330 Band Road in Rosenberg.

The varieties of plants offered for sale have been recommended for Fort Bend County by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service and are grown by the Fort Bend County Master Gardeners.

“The cooler temperatures of fall provide a great opportunity to grow vegetables in Fort Bend County,” said Master Gardener Kathy Clem. “Many varieties thrive during our fall season and several will continue to produce until early spring, weather permitting.”

Some of the vegetable plants that will be available include broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, kale, kohlrabi, celery, Swiss chard, cauliflower, lettuce, mustard greens, collards, and pak choi.

“Fall is also a good time to add herbs to your garden,” Clem noted. “Herbs brighten up many recipes and also make wonderful landscape plants since many of them are perennial.”

Chamomile, cilantro, dill, parsley, sage, salad burnet and thyme are some of the herbs that will be available.

All proceeds from the sales are used to support the educational programs offered throughout the year. This sale, along with the Fruit & Citrus Tree Sale and Spring Vegetable-Herb Plant Sale, help the Fort Bend County Master Gardeners purchase materials for training and educational efforts, demonstration garden plants, and materials.
